London’s first Projectroom event took place last night, with out-of-town organiser Jaybo inviting locals Remi/Rough and Juice 126 to collaborate in a live painting event. The three artists each took a canvas to start work on individually – Remi and Jaybo working directly on the wall and Juice getting all primeval by working barefoot on the floor. As the evening progressed the three dipped in and out of the each others canvas’ leaving 3 pretty unique and well composed collaboration pieces. Expect more collaborative painting from […]

Currently showing at Mondo Bizzarro Gallery in Rome is “Flutter”, Ana Bagayan’s first overseas solo show. Containing a delectable selection of Ana’s paintings, the California resident artist was in attendance at the recent opening, from which we have some pictures courtesy of the gallery.

AM stopped by StolenSpace this weekend to check out their latest exhibition, Kai & Sunny’s “Return to the Wild”. The show contains large scale one-off and small edition prints by the duo, with a cohesive colour palette and fantastic nature inspired subject matter and motifs used throughout. Alongside the wall pieces are four floor standing tee-pee lights with silkscreened covers stretched over bamboo frames. These pieces of functional art provide a welcoming glow to the entrance of the gallery, and were first seen in a […]
Free Life Centre is a touring art installation and performance space conceived and constructed by artists Mark Warren Jacques (interviewed) and Seth Neefus. Last year, the friends and co-owners of Together Gallery (along with fellow artists Timothy Karpinski and David Wien), decided to put out a call for funding for the project, which was answered by friends and supporters. Now, the show is ready to go on the road, with a send–off party last week in Portland ahead of the first stop in Seattle, Wa. […]

After six months of studio time, and a week in the gallery prior to the opening installing his latest exhibition, Richard Colman opened his “Keep Out The Light” exhibition at New Image Art recently. We have been watching out for updates on how the show was coming together, as Colman’s shows are usually very installation heavy, and always exciting. Richard was pounding the tools until the early hours each day with the install, and the scale & intensity of this show certainly doesn’t disappoint – […]
We all know that Ben Eine’s alphabet shutters can brighten up any street right? Well, we were surprised that before now, Ben had never actually painted a full alphabet down one street, so AM went along to see how Middlesex Street in London, was getting turned into Alphabet Street. A new gallery in town, Electric Blue, had liaised with the local proprietors and shop owners and agreed that the shutters could be painted by Eine all along this largely ‘unpainted’ area sandwiched between Liverpool St […]

We recently brought you a preview for “The Future Tense” held last week at the Future Gallery in London, where we focused on the art of Icelandic artist Katrin Fridriks. Well, AM sadly couldn’t make it to the show ourselves, but Ed of TFT sent us along a great set of pictures of the installed art and also from the opening event. It looks as a good night was had by all, and for an inaugural exhibition, it also looks as the event was well […]
